Sky Bet League One Player of the Month nominations - December 2016

4 January 2017

The nominations for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month award for December 2016.

Gwion Edwards (Peterborough United)

Happy on the wing or centrally, the Welshman provided stunning examples of both roles, stepping inside to fizz a 25-yarder into the top corner against Chesterfield and offering up a mesmerising 50-yard dribble and finish at Charlton Athletic.

Matty Lund (Rochdale)

Defensive midfielders stop the opposition scoring, something Lund did with notable tackles in the wins over leaders Scunthorpe United and Northampton Town. What he also managed in the latter game was to score a perfect hat-trick - the first of his career.

Matty Taylor (Bristol Rovers)

Three more goals took Taylor’s tally in 44 Sky Bet EFL games in 2016 to an astonishing 29. Having not played above National League level until 17 months ago, he continues to find ways to score in spite of facing better defenders in League One.

David Wheater (Bolton Wanderers)

His experience and know-how have proved vital in Wanderers conceding just 15 goals in 24 league games – the best in the Sky Bet EFL. Also found time to go forward for set pieces and score both goals in the 2-1 win over Shrewsbury Town.

The winner will be announced on Friday.
